    The False Claims Act (FCA) is the federal government's primary weapon to combat allegations of fraud and abuse in its programs.  Over the past year, significant new trends have emerged regarding FCA enforcement and risk, such as how circuit courts have applied the Supreme Court's ruling in Escobar, how courts are construing what constitutes a known overpayment that must be remitted to the government, and when violations of the Anti-Kickback law and Stark law can constitute a violation of the FCA.  Also, the government's enforcement activities may shift as a result of the Department of Justice's recent Brand and Granston memos.

    Our expert panel will address these and other emerging FCA developments.  This is an intermediate program intended for lawyers and compliance professionals who defend FCA actions or investigate whether an FCA violation has occurred.

    Topics to be address would include trending FCA issues that a significant portion of AHLA's community would have an interest, such as how the FCA's materiality standard is evolving in light of the Supreme Court's ruling in Escobar and what opportunities are presented to defendants in light of the Court's ruling?; how FCA cases involving application of the Anti-Kickback law and Stark law are trending?; what courts are saying about FCA actions alleging a lack of medical necessity, or other issues turning on an application of clinical judgment?; and how are courts applying the 60-day overpayment rule in FCA actions?

    Level of Difficulty: Intermediate
